MDC Alliance secretary-general, Chalton Hwende says he is not in politics for money but to help fellow citizens do away with a ruthless system that is destroying the country’s future.

Hwende, a close confidante of MDC-A leader Nelson Chamisa, said he declined a salary and other benefits from his party when he landed his current post at the 2019 congress. He wrote on his Facebook page:

Politics is not a money-making venture or a business to me but a call to help my country get rid of kleptomaniac dictatorship that is destroying our future.

As SG (secretary-general), l work full time and congress resolved that l should be paid but since congress l have refused a salary, a car, airtime or fuel from MDC-A.

The previous SG (Douglas Mwonzora) had a Toyota Prado that was bought by the party when the same offer was extended to me, l refused because l can afford to buy a car for myself.

Hwende urged the party’s supporters not to be distracted, claiming that recalled MDC-A legislators and councillors are busy working on the party’s rural strategy to grow the rural vote.

The former Kuwadzana South legislator runs the SADC regional transport logistics business and is a former MDC-T deputy treasurer-general.
